Statins May Complicate Diabetes

Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. and Dr. Mike Roizen, M.D. By Tuesday, 02 November 2021 11:43 AM Current | Bio | Archive

In "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," Dumbledore says, "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

You don't have to be a wizard to see how true that is when it comes to managing diabetes.

Each health-bestowing choice you make — about food, activity, sleep, and weight — may challenge you, but they're what set you apart from the crowd and give you a shot at a long and happy life.

That became crystal clear recently when a study in JAMA Internal Medicine found that taking statins when you have diabetes may reduce your heightened risk of heart disease, but it makes diabetes worse.

It turns out that statins boost glucose levels, cause acute glycemic complications, and make it more likely that you'll have to increase the number of glucose-lowering meds you take.

Clearly, making lifestyle changes to put diabetes in remission (no red or processed meats or ultraprocessed foods, no added sugars/syrups; adopting a plant-based diet; getting 60 minutes of physical activity most days) is the smart move. For most folks, those moves will lower heart-damaging LDL cholesterol too.

The Monday Campaigns (mondaycampaigns.org) Meatless Monday Culinary Ambassadors can help. For example, chef and doctor Robert Graham suggests you make cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli a main course by tossing with olive oil, pepper, garlic, and a squeeze of lemon before oven-roasting.

And for more amazing veggie entrees and side dishes, check out Dr. Mike's "What to Eat When Cookbook."
